Jamel Aït Ben Idir (born January 10, 1984 in Mont-Saint-Aignan) is a French-Moroccan footballer who currently plays for Wydad Casablanca.[1]


Aït Ben Idir had been playing for Le Havre since 2000 when he joined the club as a youth player. He made his professional debut for the club in a Ligue 2 match on March 26, 2002 against AC Ajaccio.

He then moved onto AC Arles-Avignon, Sedan, and now plays for Ligue 2 club AJ Auxerre. Aït Ben Idir has scored seven goals in his career. He plays a midfielder, but usually in a defensive role. He sometimes plays in a full-back position.
